On enjoying life across the pond:
"I love London - it's my adopted home. Being an American woman living in Britain, there are things I've had to catch up on, though. Chris had to explain Blue Peter to me! In London, the kids and I really take advantage of the city. I have them on the tube, in the museums, in St James' Park, the theater. I use that city so much - I want them exposed to it."
"It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, 'How did you and mom stay married for 33 years?' and he said, 'Well we never wanted to get divorced at the same time.' And I think that's what happened. When two people throw in the towel at the same, then you break up, but if one person's saying, 'Come on, we can do this,' you carry on."
On how she approaches her and Chris' relationship:
"I'm a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, 'Where are you? You should be home by now.' I never place demands on him because I think he's a really talented man and he's putting something good into the world."
